Summary
"James A. Paluch, Jr. is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. In this remarkably perceptive book, he Offers the reader an account of the daily realities of prison life in its mundane essentials, from the culture of the cellblock to the etiquette of the yard and the mess hall. This book also highlights concepts of prisonization, institutionalization, and the community, as well as the nature of modern punishment." -- Back cover
